Huckabee Expands Itinerary for New Hampshire Visit

AUGUST 25, 2005 - Posted at 4:12 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Governor Huckabee's itinerary for a weekend trip to New Hampshire has gotten longer.

The Arkansas governor, a potential presidential candidate in 2008, is making his first trip to the state that holds the nation's first presidential primary.  Huckabee will sit in for Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney at a Republican "Steakout" Saturday in Nashau, New Hampshire.  Romney dropped out, citing family reasons.

Huckabee already was scheduled to appear Saturday in New Hampshire at a breakfast question-and-answer session in Manchester and as the keynote speaker at the Strafford County Republican Picnic, Pig Roast and Family Day near Dover.  The biggest GOP event in the state this year is expected to draw more than 800 people from throughout New England.

Huckabee says he'll decide in a year whether he wants to mount a full presidential run.

When reminded that organizers of the pig roast wanted a prospective presidential candidate as keynote speaker, Huckabee said, "They have the power to make me one."
